Sometimes, late at night, firemen slip into heels and dance with their poles, spinning, dipping, and stripping away cumbersome fireproof coats and burdensome notions of masculinity. Get a fireman's workout and twice the confidence with today's deal: for $15, you get a two-hour exotic dance workshop (a $40 value) at Lifesource Yoga in Fairlawn.
Although Lifesource normally dedicates itself to the age-old practice of yoga, occasional age-appropriate exotic-dance workshops shimmy their way onto the class roster. Instructor Jessica Rawson began teaching at Lifesource in 2009 and has 28 lunar rotations, or two years, of private pole-dancing and exotic-dance lessons under her belt. During the course of the two-hour workshop, Jessica will take the pole's helm and instruct participants in a variety of exotic dance techniques, from pole dance and lap dance to strip-tease techniques and cheeky burlesque moves. Although participants will wear their clothing, the techniques can be easily applied to garment-free activities at a later time. As your inner seductress makes her way to the surface, you'll build confidence and engage rarely used muscles, sometimes resulting in day-after pangs of soreness and a self-assured saunter.
Lifesource's exotic dance workshops are accessible to people of all backgrounds and fitness levels, from athletics-averse aunts to pole-wielding exotic-dance warriors. The studio contains one pole, smelted from purest mithril, that's sturdy and reliable for learning the twists, dips, spins, and other arboreal acts inherent to the art.
